The Temptations – 1972 – All Directions

A monster album, the one that put them back in the spotlight and signaled that Norman Whitfield had saved the day. Damon Harris had replaced Eddie Kendricks, and there were many doubters convinced the band was finished. Instead, Whitfield revitalized them via the majestic single, “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone“. Despite its…

Laura Lee – 1972 – Love More Than Pride

After Etta James’ highly successful trip down South, Chess Records decided to send another one of its finest female soul vocalists to Muscle Shoals. Laura Lee possessed some huge pipes, perfectly suited for the raw soul & roll that was dominating the scene in the…

Deniece Williams – 1979 – When Love Comes Calling

Significantly different from 1977’s Song Bird, When Love Comes Calling followed Deniece Williams’ success with Johnny Mathis on the number one Hot 100 single “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late” and subsequent album That’s What Friends Are For. Williams signed to Maurice White’s Columbia-affiliated ARC label, but White was otherwise all but absent compared to his level…

Al Green – 1977 – The Belle Album

Most Al Green albums work their way over time into you; this one uncharacteristically reaches out and shakes you up, an odd result when one goes largely acoustic and goes for more or less the same quiet grooves that one had pursued for most of…

Coke Escovedo ‎- 1975- Coke

 I stumbled across this album while quenching my thirst for some groovy classic funk. You know, the kinda funk that incites that face like you caught a whiff of somethang so rank…  Well, this 1975 release by Coke Escovedo will certainly spark your soul.  “Coke”…

The Dells – 1971 – Freedom Means

1971 was a huge year for Soul Music – especially American Soul. Marvin Gaye’s staggering “What’s Going On” on Tamla (which many argue is the greatest LP every made in any genre and they might be right) – Aretha Franklin’s right-on Grooveathon “Aretha Live At…

Shuggie Otis ‎- 1971 – Freedom Flight

AllMusic Review by Thom Jurek 1971’s Freedom Flight is perhaps, in its own way, every bit as adventurous and regal as Shuggie Otis’ masterpiece, Inspiration Information. Produced by Shuggie’s father, R&B legend Johnny Otis, the album features seven stellar, genre bending cuts, most of which were written…

Margie Joseph – 1971 – Phase II

Amazingly, Margie’s second and last LP for Stax failed to chart. For my money, as brilliant as ‘Margie Joseph Makes a New Impression‘ is – and brilliant IT IS – ‘Phase II’ actually surpasses its predecessor in coming up with beautifully orchestrated soul gems that…

Mel & Tim ‎- 1972 – Starting All Over Again

Mel & Tim were a classic Chicago soul vocal duo, recording in Muscle Shoals in the deep South for Stax and making records that fit comfortably next to those made in Philadelphia. It may sound incongruous, but their 1972 album, Starting All Over Again is…

The Intruders – 1970 – When We Get Married

If you see a copy of this album, swoop it up because one day it’ll be a collector item. The lead singer for the Intruders on this is not Sam “Little Sonny” Brown, but Bobby Starr, an unheralded Philadelphia lounge singer. This is the only Intruders recording that…

Grupo Oz – 1972 – Grupo Oz

A rare pearl coming from Mexico, formed in the early 70s in the capital Mexico City. The “Grupo Oz” has released only one album in 1972, with little copies, making the group end in the same year.  An interesting mixing of styles, from funk rock,…

Manhattans – 1974 – That’s How Much I Love You

Sublime work from The Manhattans – who are on top of the world at this point! The group’s harmonies are excellent, a bit rough in the best parts – ala Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes during the Teddy Pendergrass years – but also capable…

The Pointer Sisters – 1973 – The Pointer Sisters

The fantastic debut of The Pointer Sisters – an album that’s a lot deeper than most of their crossover pop from years to come! At the time of the album’s release, the trio were a badass group of female singers on the Bay Area scene…

Gene Harris ‎- 1972 – Gene Harris Of The Three Sounds

While jazz is deniably important, it’s not always accessible for everyone, but Harris welcomes the listener this outing, never too extravagant but never boring, always as much about the song as the solo, this teaches us not only about music, but about art and life…
